Is there a way to define custom named styles with easylist? I am aware of using


to define an easylist style in the document and you can globally define an easylist style for all easylist lists as described here.

I am wondering if there is a way in the preamble to define custom easylist styles and give them names so I can call multiple custom styles in my document without defining them everytime. I am aware that there are already predefined styles that can be called on by




but what I would like to do is to be able to call


and then


where mystyle1 and mystyle2 are globally accessible predefined styles.

Thanks in advance!

  • it is possible, but only if you redefine internal commands of easylist, the package itself has not code for such a style system. – Ulrike Fischer Jun 19 '17 at 20:28

You can build a wrapper around easylist.


\def\definemyeasylist#1#2{\expandafter\def\csname myeasylist@style@#1\endcsname{\NewList(#2)}}
\def\domyeasylistone[#1]{\begin{easylist}\if\relax\detokenize{#1}\relax\else\csname myeasylist@style@#1\endcsname\fi}

\definemyeasylist{mystyle}{Progressive*=3ex, Start1=2,Style*=\color{green!60!black}}
